Senator Shehu Sani has reacted mockingly to the threat by Segun Oni to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) if he is not treated with respect.
Oni, who was the first runner-up in the Saturday, May 12, APC primary in Ekiti state made the statement on the grounds that his supporters were receiving threats from the camp of Kayode Fayemi, who won the election.
Reacting to the feud, Sani representing Kaduna central in the National Assembly in a tweet on Wednesday, May 16, recalled that Oni months ago mediated in peace efforts on behalf of the APC in Kaduna.
He suggested that for Oni to be complaining about victimization and injustice against him in his state was a case of fire in the fire man’s house.
